about

The Bashful New York, New York

The Bashful is a crossing of paths of two unique bands, Brooklyn's rock-infused Stray Volts and LA/NYC indiepunk band, the happy problem. With strains of Nirvana, The Police, Blondie, even Janis Joplin, The Bashful combined rock, grunge, groove, disco, and pop to create music dark but danceable, cynical but optimistic. Hear "Harder Deeper Faster" featured in the new Weinstein film, BUTTER. ... more

Track Name: Deep in the Heat
Deep in the Heat

I’m not like the others
I’m mischief by design
You’re looking for a tinge of danger
It’s time to testify
Your eyes, your lips, your hands on my hips
Some way, somehow, right here, right now

Deep deep in the heat
A moment frozen in time
Deep deep in the heat
Your body right next to mine

Let go, bend over
Just leave the wheel to me
Let’s ride all of the edges
Warm-up stone cold concrete
Your eyes, your lips, your hands on my hips
Some way, somehow, right here, right now

Deep deep in the heat
A moment frozen in time
Deep deep in the heat
Your body right next to mine

Get you to thaw from your deep freeze
(Deep in the heat, deep in the heat)
Take you from raw, push up my sleeves
(Deep in the heat, deep in the heat)

I know I shouldn’t but I really really want to
I know I shouldn’t but I really really want you
I know I shouldn’t but I really really want to
I know I shouldn’t but I really really want you
I know I shouldn’t but I really really want to
I know I shouldn’t but I really really want you
I know I shouldn’t but I really really want to
I know I shouldn’t but I really really want you

A moment frozen in time
Your body right next to mine
A moment frozen in time
Track Name: Boat
Boat

If you had a boat
You could dock at home
But you'd set for some foreign shore
To join their war

Would you stay all night
Making love and making right
Cause it's better to be
In bad company
Than without you

If you made a scene
You'd return to see
You'd be pointing down the sand
Blood on your hands

Would you stay all night
Making love and making right
Cause it's better to be
In bad company
Than without you

I used to get down on my knees
And plead
For someone come to me
To show me all the love and light
That shines
When everything is right
But it was you who came on waves of pain
But brought me pleasure
Showed me treasure
Trails
And it was you who ripped the sails
And left me

Would you stay all night
Making love and making right
Cause it's better to be
In bad company
Than without you
Track Name: Smithereens
Smithereens

On the surface you're a shiny, happy, pretty face
Neatly folded, warmly welcome, nothing out of place
But you hide a thousand corners caked in dusty lace
And I'm suffocating searching for some breathing space

And I love you I guess
Though all my intestines are a mess
And I love you it seems
Though daily I'm blown to smithereens

Digging deeper, nothing holding up but silt and sand
I’ve been circling round your planet for a spot to land
But you speak a language I will never understand
And the bombs exploding aren't on the battle plan

And I love you I guess
Though all my intestines are a mess
And I love you it seems
Though daily I'm blown to smithereens

Clinging to that pretty picture in the backyard
Time to let it go
In a civil war you can't be mourning where you are
Muscle up and blow to smithereens

And I love you I guess
Though all my intestines are a mess
And I love you it seems
Though daily I'm blown
And I love you I guess
Though all my synapses are a mess
And I love you it seems
Though daily I’m blown
To smithereens
Track Name: Harder Deeper Faster
Harder, Deeper, Faster

Only love makes you kill
Breaks your legs, breaks your will
Tears you up by the roots
Makes you fall down blue

Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Love runs your life
Love ruins your life

Only love makes you scream
Makes you blister and bleed
Chews your heart into holes
Leaves the mirror face cold

Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster

Love is pain, love stabs deep
Love pulls out of every sleep
Everytime you think love is beat
Love defeats

Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Love runs your life
Love ruins your life
Love runs your life
Love ruins your life

Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
Harder, deeper, faster
